Happy New Year to all – although that seems a LONG while ago.  Apologies for not posting but have been up and down to Edinburgh Scotland ( a 700 mile round trip from home ) helping my daughter move and keeping the grandchildren out of the way- a full time job
However thanks for the recent comments
My reply on the chemical spur is that the pulp mill was built in the late 1940’s as a market pulp kraft mill. So chemicals are caustic soda, chorine and sulphuric acid plus some cleaning chemical. I have only two car spots and use some generic tank cars, but as I said I hope to increase this later in 2018.
I take the point about the run through Shelton to Bremerton as additional traffic but I tried to model the track layout at Shelton and could not make it fit. There are a few Simpson/Shelton features. The woods track crossing the street to enter the mill- the engine house  and dispatchers office over the creek and near the street -the dump tracks running through the mill site- but that is all I could fit. The short line has more from Longview than Shelton.
In spite of the Christmas/New Year events I have done some work on roughing in the woods camp as you can see it is not just plywood but I am operating it for a while before doing too much scenery. That should start next month
Best wishes
Alan

Great stuff.  Space limitations can always be a bit frustrating.

Hi Alan :wave:



Good idea, running a few ops. before finalizing Camp-16. L:

Looks pretty good though.

I'm sure you've got it sorted. :thumb:



Gotta say again ... :old dude:

... HO modern(ish) logging is a great theme to follow.



I like the squat looking water-tower, with the 'logging' style footings.

Your string of camp-cars looks pretty nice as well. :)



Keep it coming Alan.

All the best, from the other side of the concrete-jungle. ;)



:moose:



Si.

By the way Alan I still exhibit a small layout called Two Sister’s Farm which is 1/32 scale narrow gauge. It is very loosely based on a narrow gauge farm estate railway found on the Lincolnshire Fens in the late 1950’s. At one time there were over fifty small railways on many farms, mostly powered by horse but a couple of the larger operations used small diesels and one even steam.
The model is more what might have been rather than what actually existed. It is a little different to most narrow models by virtue of the various powered vehicles used on the farm. All a bit of fun and not to be taken seriously.
A thread about the layout can be found on this site by searching for Two Sister’s Farm in the narrow gauge section.

Regards Peter M
